    Anyone's experienced the same problems?
    Got these 2 little thumbnail pictures appear in the finder's toolbar!! they happen to be my own pictures, but i can't figure out how they end up being there or how to get rid of them!!!
    Tried dragging it out, customise toolbar, but just couldn't get rid of them!!



    Someone please help!!

    Weird....You could not have dragged them from the toolbar set...Are you using some kind of scanner / printer software...That would be my guess.

    well, yes, there is a printer/scanner that is connected wirelessly, I have the same setting on my notebook, don't seem to have the same issue. And those pictures were't the ones that I have scanned or something!! just messing with my head now!! weird!

    What I mean is does that printer / scanner have installed junk software you get with most of them these days?

    If not

    1) Empty your Safari Cache and then re-set Safari

    2) Shut down

    3) perform a PRAM re-set:


    Shut down your machine. Yes, all the way down, not sleep or logging out.
    Press the power button and then press command-option-p-r. You have to make sure you get those keys pressed before the gray screen comes up or it won’t work.
    Hold those keys down until your Mac reboots again and you here the startup chime.
    Let go of the keys and let your Mac reboot normally.

    No, but you can put app icons up there. I guess you can put pictures up there too.

    You can! I just dragged three Jpegs right there....From a frequently used MR image point of view this could actually be useful...:)

    Usually you can get rid of those by Command-dragging them off.
    PRAM/NVRAM has nothing to do with with the OP's issues. Resetting it will not help.
    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:
    It's Command, not Option.
